Christmas mantel

I'm doing a re-post of sorts to show my Christmas mantel from last year on a Linky party.

I really kept it simple, and LOVED this look. All I did was make a FABULOUS garland, thanks to the Nester, and it totally made the mantle. I twisted 3 fake pine garlands together (that I already had), and basically just stuck in a bunch of stuff. Twigs, sparkly things, berries, etc. I found the red glass candle holders for $4 at Goodwill, and then just put our Christmas cards up there. Voila! This was the hardest thing to put away because I wanted to keep looking at it. Can't wait to bring it out year after year!

Thanks for reposting and linking up! I had just entered home blogging when everyone was showing off their big, fluffy Nester-inspired garlands. I loved them...and still do. I hope you'll join the party in weeks to come.
